Lucifer came into being in 2014 soon after the all-too-quick demise of The Oath, with vocalist Johanna Sadonis starting anew here. The band debuted around the same time as a similar female-fronted doom band in Death Penalty, (both bands feature or featured ex-Cathedral guitarist Gaz Jennings), with the self-titled Lucifer debut drawing from familiar modern doom influences and Sadonis maintaining her high standards from her previous band. Soon afterward Sadonis recruited an all-new lineup featuring former Entombed drummer Nicke Andersson (he and Sadonis are now married), and the style on subsequent albums has shifted to a more 70's hard rock style, with a dash of occultism and some nods to the doomier side of the debut.

Recent album: Lucifer V, released on January 26, 2024.
